Short clips on ‘Biodiversity Awareness’
UEBT is looking for an enthusiastic team of students to make several short clips about biodiversity to illustrate our global research on this topic. The students will travel to France, Germany and England to interview people about biodiversity (travel costs covered). This will be great experience to take up a project independently, to get exposure for your work and make a nice trip with your team.
Subject: What is meaning of biodiversity to consumers?
Duration: several very short clips for use on internet (less than 1.5 min each)
Use: To be used to illustrate the Barometer research (biodiversity awareness around the world) online and at the UEBT conference in Paris.
Deadline for application: 6 April 2015. Send email to email@example.com Of zo snel mogelijk erna!! (YW)
The clips would contain very short interviews with people from some countries included in the 2015 barometer research. Questions could be: have you heard about biodiversity, what does biodiversity mean to you, do you expect companies to pay attention to biodiversity?
Responsibilities of producers: The producers would be responsible for developing a plan & budget, for interviewing & filming people in selected EU countries, and editing the clips. UEBT may be able to provide footage from countries like Brazil and Mexico that could be included in the clips. The clips should be ready by 31 May 2015
Expenses: Travel expenses (to the selected EU countries) will be covered, as well as other material expenses related to the development of the videos.
Context: According to the 2020 targets of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity, all people around the world should understand the value of biodiversity.
The Union for Ethical BioTrade, a non-profit association that promotes ethical sourcing of biodiversity, issues a Biodiversity Barometer each year. The barometer surveys consumer awareness on biodiversity. In 2015 the consumer research will be conducted in 9 countries: Netherlands, France, Germany, UK, Ecuador, Mexico, US, Brazil and India.
The UEBT Biodiversity Barometer is used by the United Nations to measure progress towards its 2020 targets, and by UEBT To encourage companies to pay more attention to biodiversity.
Applications: UEBT is looking for students with relevant expertise (film, journalism, camera, editing) that are interested in taking up this project.
Those interested are requested to submit a short proposal (team, experience, approach, expected costs – 1 A4) to UEBT before 6 April 2015. Send the application to firstname.lastname@example.org
